Thanks to all of the volunteers who came out to count over 7, 000 fish this Saturday! We had volunteers of all ages come out to learn about our white seabass restoration program.

White Seabass Feeder Orientation

TBA

Location

All of our White Seabass events take place at:

San Diego Bay Pens
N. Harbor Drive & Hawthorn Street, San Diego, CA 92101

Background

The White Seabass Restoration Project was established to reintroduce white seabass to California coastal waters. An important game fish and commercial food fish, a decade ago, white seabass virtually disappeared from California. Surveys showed the loss of habitat, specifically the loss of wetlands that are important nursery habitats for the fish, along with heavy commercial fishing, and the development of gill nets depleted the white seabass populations to 10% of what they were only 50 years ago.

To help change this course, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife instituted the “Oceans Resources and Hatchery Enhancement Program” (ORHEP), and funded the Hubbs-Seaworld Research Institute’s (HSWRI) experimental marine fish hatchery in Carlsbad, California. nt a small “tag” inscribed with fertilization date and brood stock information is inserted into the jaw bone of the juvenile fish. The fish are then transported to one of 15 grow-out facilities along the California coast.

Volunteer Component

SDOF maintains two grow-out facilities and is one of the major volunteer components of the HSWRI program. The grow-out facilities consist of netted pens in the bay. This is an economical way to maintain large volumes of fish prior to release and allow the developing fish to acclimate to ocean water.

After 3-4 months, the fish reach a size of about 12 inches and are released from the pens directly into local waters – in hopes that they will survive to adulthood. To date, more than 1, 000, 000 white seabass have been released to the ocean through the ORHEP Program – 90, 000+ of which were reared by SDOF volunteers!

Our volunteers feed and monitor the health of the fish every day. We rely on our volunteers to collect data on water quality conditions, presence of predators, general fish health and feeding activity. The great thing about being a white seabass volunteer is that you can choose when you volunteer! After you have attended a short orientation, just check our feeding calendar and then send an email to: whiteseabass@sdof.org to sign up for a day/time that works best with your schedule.

Then stay at Ocean Beach, San Diego

It's just 10 miles south of La Jolla and much cheaper. I had some really good giant fish bowl dinners there like for less than $10. I don't remember exactly but it was very reasonable and good so I ate there almost every night. I never saw such a fish bowl dinner down here on any menu.
Thing about the beach down there. It's like downtown SF. Seems like everybody in the world hangs on the beach even at night. Not used to that.
